Al was a lifetime bowler. He bowled in The State of California Tournaments and many other tournaments from the 1960's to the 1990's. He bowled three perfect 300 games after the age of 70. He continued to bowl on teams well into his 80's and 90's.
He fought in World War II as a member of The US ARMY INFANTRY, earning a Bronze Star and in the Korean Conflict as a member of the US AIR FORCE. After the conflict he became a Master Sergeant in charge of shipping in the Air National Guard based in Van Nuys, California for over 20 years.

My father did not wish a burial ceremony and requested his ashes be scattered in the Pacific Ocean.
My father contributed to charities for our Military. In lieu of flowers please donate to our Military Families and the Wounded Warriors Organization.
